My original comment was that there does not seem to be a definition
of "seeking backwards" in the draft yet the draft assumes specific
requirements for "seeking backwards". The same is true for the draft
plus the proposed change. If "seeking backwards" is clearly defined
in the draft it should be easy to comply with my original request
to link to that definition from the discard element definition; and
if there is no such definition, removeChild() is simply not defined
to have the impact on "seeking backwards" you describe.
